Safety Award of Excellence

The Safety Award of Excellence is presented to any fabricator or affiliate member employer who has experienced a ZERO (0.00) OSHA Total Recordable Incident Rate for the previous calendar year.

Safety Award of Achievement

The Safety Award of Achievement is presented to any fabricator or affiliate member employer who has experienced a minimum 10% reduction in the OSHA Total Recordable Incident Rate, with no fatalities, during the calendar year, as compared with the average Total Recordable Incident Rate for the three previous years.

See sample calculation below:

Calculating Incident Rate for Safety Achievement Award: Example

Total Recordable Incident Rate* (OSHA Statistics)    1.7
Total Recordable Incident Rate* (OSHA Statistics) + 1.4
Total Recordable Incident Rate* (OSHA Statistics) + 2.9
Three-year total   = 6.0

3-Year Average Total Recordable Incident Rate ( - ) 6.0 (as above) ÷ 3 = 2.0
Total Recordable Incident Rate (OSHA Statistics) = 1.2
% Reduction = 3 Year Average Rate – Rate: 2.0 - 1.2 X 100 = 40% reduction
3 Year Average Rate 2.0

*Calculating OSHA Annual Recordable Incident Rate

To calculate the total case rate for all recordable incidents of injuries and illnesses, use the following formula:

Total number of injuries and illnesses x 200,000** ÷ Number of hours worked by all employees = Total Recordable Incident Rate

**The 200,000 multiplier in the sample formula represents hours worked by 100 employees, 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year. It is the standard base for calculating incidents rates.
